AIA Statement: This is a time of reflection

This is a time of reflection. There are no words that can adequately express our compassion or sorrow for the families touched by the unspeakable and senseless tragedy visited on Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas this week. Yet again, we are reminded that life is precious and impermanent, that we must cherish the moments we have with those who we hold most dear, and that we are all connected because we are all human.

Women in architecture

Women in architecture are a dynamic and influential segment in the profession, but when looking at leadership roles we also ask-Where are they? AIA champions a diverse profession and part of this effort is directed at women through leadership development, career resources, and a strong peer network. With this support, increasing prominence, and a greater sense of belonging, women are transforming the profession now and will continue to do so for future generations.
